  1. Grade Week 6 DRE
    1. Remember, if you have "extra" corrections on the DRE just mark them off with your red pen, but don't count them wrong.  Only count it wrong if it is something that I have on mine, that you don't have on yours.  (But remember, if you corrected it in another way like adding a period and capitalizing the first letter of the new sentence rather than putting a semi-colon, that is okay too!)  Use your judgement and BE HONEST!!!!!!!!!
